Validation is first step in IBM and Infragistics Relationship

Princeton, N.J., & Elstree, United Kingdom – June 12, 2007--Infragistics, a world leader in presentation layer development tools, announces that TestAdvantage for IBM Rational Functional Tester, now in beta, and NetAdvantage for JavaServer Faces (JSF) have received Ready for IBM Rational software validation. TestAdvantage for IBM Rational Functional Tester will enable regression testing of user interfaces built using NetAdvantage for Windows Forms 2006 Volume 1.  NetAdvantage for JSF is a comprehensive set of AJAX-enabled JSF components for building commercial- class user interfaces for J2EE applications and delivers an optimized design-time experience for application developers creating user interfaces in IBM’s Rational Application Developer.  Leveraging Infragistics integration of its controls with IBM Rational Application Developer, developers can now select Infragistics controls from within the pallet of controls supported by IBM Rational Application Developer to easily manipulate positioning, sizing and overall control layout, reducing development time and improving the productivity of J2EE applications development.

“The validation of Infragistics NetAdvantage for JSF and TestAdvantage for IBM Rational Functional Tester through the Ready for IBM Rational software validation program demonstrates and validates the integration between Infragistics’ tools and the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform,” said Michael Loria, vice president business development, IBM Rational Software. “Both Infragistics products meet IBM Rational software integration guidelines for interoperability as well as provide a consistent user experience when installed into IBM Rational products.”

“We’re pleased to be able to say our products are Ready for IBM Rational validated because it means that Test Advantage for Rational Functional Tester and NetAdvantage for JSF become part of the IBM ecosystem that enables organizations to automate, integrate, and govern the core business process of software and systems delivery via the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform,” said Jonathan Cohen, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Infragistics.

The world premier release of Infragistics TestAdvantage for IBM Rational Functional Tester, later this year, will be a cooperative effort between IBM and Infragistics to provide a solid testing solution, through custom proxies, for IBM Rational Functional Tester. IBM Rational Functional Tester provides solutions for automating the functional and regression testing of applications. Through this integration, enterprise test teams will be able to maximize the usage of IBM Rational Functional Tester by being able to fully test NetAdvantage-powered applications.
